Truly if my weight could reflect the emotional workout I've gone through - I'd be anorexic. The reality is - my weight has bought its own ticket on the roller coaster ride and stopped at every single food trolley and truck.... I'd almost given up and convinced myself to find a way to be happy fat. And then, last week - I had a real moment when I realized I could do just that. <BR> <BR> I could be happy.... fat. <BR> <BR> I've done it a...

NS was a good experience in some ways - but reinforces what i know about my body and how it deals with carbs and processed foods.
